Computer Club for St. Benedict's - report by Mrs Glenda Viljoen, Computer Centre Teacher - Elementary School
 
At the beginning of May 1999, Mrs Wouters (Principal of the Elementary School) and I decided to offer the boys in Grades 1 to 3 the opportunity to partake in the Knowledge Network Computer Club. The response was overwhelming. The first day we had 84 responses, by the end of the week, we had 136 responses. We could only accommodate 106 boys on four afternoons.

The decision was taken to use the Knowledge Network Junior Club Curriculum. The boys participated with enthusiasm, excitement and interest, learning a great deal while having fun.

Then it came to registration for the third term. On the first day of registration we had a queue that indicated that the response  was going to be just as overwhelming as the second term. By the end of the second day, the four computer club afternoons were full with a waiting list of 25 boys.

The boys have benefited greatly from the Knowledge Network Junior Club Curriculum. They have enjoyed learning in a fun and exciting environment - so much so that the parent s are requesting courses in order for them to be computer literate.
